1950Jamison's review of Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX

“Hitting back at the 807 malcontents”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by 1950Jamison (1 review written)

I have owned two Peugeot 807 2Lt HDI executives bought from new. .The first in 2004 the second in 2007 - which is my current car. Over the past ten years I have not had a single problem or cause for concern. I have always had the cars serviced at the main-dealership from whom they were bought. They have taken my wife and I all over Europe with a packed boot and a1550 kgs caravan trundling behind. The outfit has taken on the Alps and Pyrennes on twenty occasions and never once given me the slightest reason for concern although I must confess that at altitude and on some long steep inclines my speed did drop into the 40-45 mph range. Driven solo it averaged 50 -55mpg on long trips and 25mpg towing. They have been a pleasure to own and to drive. Apart from reasonable service costs I have replaced only tyres and, on my current vehicle - now seven and a half years old ,the brake-pads. If Peugeot still made them I would not hesitate to buy another new one. If I had to find fault with something both my wife and I agree that the speedometer dial was difficult to read in some daylight conditions . My wife and I have just test-driven a Peugeot 5008 - essentially the 807's replacement - a pleasant enough car but one which could not match what we have experienced with our 807s.
